Like all forms of Information Control, book burnings in the modern era may look different than in the past, but they are the same in intent and effect. Whether it’s deplatforming, demonetizing, or silently limiting the reach of posts, it’s all just the book burning of the Internet Age.
Some things only change in detail and specific methodology. Whether it’s Goebbels’ Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda (RMVP), Facebook, Twitter, or the insinuative monster that is Google, the strict control of information is a prerequisite for the sought after tyrannical rule. Changing the name or the specific methods of control doesn’t change the fundamental fact of it or the effects it has upon Peoples.
Truly! Have you ever wondered how many people you’ve “killed” over the last decade by spreading the Flu? I’m guessing no, you haven’t. After all, it never served anyone’s purposes for the Flu, arguably to the most deadly family of virii in human history (Conservatively, 37.5 million deaths in the last century), to be treated as an existential threat to humanity deserving of unlimited and extreme containment measures.
Of course, with the Flu, they always talked about taking measures to protect yourself. But with the Coronavirus, they turned that into taking any and all mandated steps to protect others from your possible infection. That, more than most of the rest of it, is the real cause for concern.
Different Language, Different Details, Still The Same Thing
Mankind has heard this sort of thing before and lived through the dark and wet work of ridding the world of it. Sadly though, we’re hearing it again, if in a different language and with a different focus and details of expression.
The sorts who are so vociferous and strident about the “protective measures” needed to combat COVID-19 paint the rest of us as public enemies because of their version of Nibelungentreue. If you’re a student of modern history, you can almost hear them chanting “Meine Ehre Heisst Treue!” as they make it very clear that we’re not part of their Volksgemeinschaft and that they consider us a threat to it which must be cleansed since, to them, we are very, very much Lebensunwertes Leben.
They don’t wear masks! They don’t stay at home! They have family and friends over! They go to church! They won’t close their businesses! They’re going to kill us all! They need to be stopped!
Yeah, we’ve seen what happens when large swaths of a populace start committing to do anything for the good of the Vaterland. And, in sad truth, even those who so hard against the latest emergence of this methodology in societal control weren’t immune to it. So it can – it has! – happen here.
NOTE: The ‘Rona is not a joke. It is a serious disease that, very much like the oft-ignored Flu, has a high mortality rate among those who are afflicted with underlying conditions that make them less resilient to cardio-pulmonary distress. I firmly believe that it should be treated as such.
How it is being treated, however, is worse than the ‘Rona itself. And that treatment either ignores the Flu or, worse, sets things up for a permanent state of lock-down and draconian state action.
Also, these measures are all predicated upon COVID-19 being a “one-off” situation with an end in thought if not sight, which is patently false. The virus is already mutating and is going to be another pathogen that we have to suffer from for the foreseeable future, again, just like the Flu.
Like every Thanksgiving – really, every single day – we Americans – and the Democrats and Likely Democrat demographics living within our nation’s borders – have a great deal to be thankful for. This is 2020 however, and that means that it’s a far cry from perfect or lacking in reasons for rancor.
One has to wonder just how many families in Democrat-controlled regions will have to police called on them and face criminal charges for having an extended family dinner this Holiday. One also has to at the same time wonder how many innocents will be put at risk or actually harmed through Democrat-sponsored actions to #DefundThePolice.
So, be thankful for what you have; enjoy the feast and fellowship; but be aware and be safe.
Here’s one positive thing. You can stop or reduce your worrying over the coronavirus. COVID-19 is on its way out thanks to the Biden Vaccine. The Democrats likely-beyond-reasonable-doubt installation of Joe Biden as the next POTUS is the vaccine that will destroy The ‘Rona.
By that, I don’t mean any “real” vaccine. I mean that, with the incoming Biden-Harris regime, the Lamestream Media will largely back off on sowing undue fear about COVID-19 and lambasting the Executive over any responses made or not made. They’ll do their “best” to “normalize” the fear levels while protecting Biden and Harris.
It makes perfect sense once you realize that the media is the virus. The media is the real disease causing so much pain and strife across our nation. Once that truth is understood, it makes sense that, having achieved their and their masters’ goals of installing Biden as the titular POTUS, the symptoms they caused will fade out.
Fade out, not go away!
That the media’s propagation of the “Panicdemic” will fade out doesn’t mean that it will fade away. No; the coronavirus will still be here. It’s just that the Lamestream media will normalize that while keeping just enough fear alive to enable them to castigate any and all who rebel against various and sundry Democrat politicians’ “reasonable” restrictions upon Americans’ Rights of Speech, Assembly, Religion, and Association.
Essentially, think of all Americans as “Long Haulers.”
